The Merry Wives of Windsor is a laugh-out-loud comedy full of quirky characters and hilarious tricks. Sir John Falstaff, a down-on-his-luck knight, decides to change his fortunes by wooing not one, but two, wealthy Windsor wives. Little does he know that Mistress Page and Mistress Ford are always one step ahead of his plans. When Master Ford comes to believe that his wife is actually in love with Falstaff, chaos ensues, but the two wives have the last laugh. This production, given a modern twist by guest director Timuchin Aker, will delight both Shakespeare lovers and those new to the Bard. 

Recommended for ages 8 and up. No children under school age admitted. 

Guest Artist

The Grand Valley Shakespeare Festival welcomes Guest Director Timuchin Aker. He is working with the festival for the first time, but we hope it will not be his last. 

In the role of Falstaff, Alumnus Jacob Miller joins our company of talented students, creative faculty and staff, and professional guest artists collaborating to bring Shakespeare to life. As a student, Miller appeared in numerous festival productions including most recently as Bottom in A Midsummer Night's Dream in 2019.  

The festival also welcomes back Production Stage Manager Julia Nichols who also managed the 25th Anniversary King Lear and the 2019 production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
